45 The Smiths vs. 84 The Allman Brothers Band

In the short time they were together, The Smiths became a touchstone for tons of sensitive, literate teenagers. Since their 1987 breakup, Morrissey, Johnny Marr’s legends have only continued to grow, as they have been major influences for countless bands.

The Allman Brothers Band helped define the southern rock sound, while incorporating blues and improvisation. The band continued to have success even after the 1971 death of guitarist Duane Allman. The band has continued to tour and record in some fashion to this day.
